Default Replace boltgun and/or boltpistol with:

Can you replace your boltgun with, for example, a storm bolter and then also replace your bolt pistol with another storm bolter, giving you two? Obviously for twice the cost.

Me and my friend are discussing this. I am under the impression that these are the options:

Remove bolter; add a storm bolter.
Remove bolt pistol; add a storm bolter.
Remove bolter and bolt pistol; add a storm bolter.

He is under the impression that the following option is available in addition to those three.

Remove bolter; add a storm bolter; remove bolt pistol; add a second storm bolter.

Which is correct?

You're allowed to swap either weapon or both weapons for anything on the list, even doubles. You're allowed to be armed with both a Storm Shield and Thunder Hammer, you're allowed to be armed with two power weapons, and you're allowed to be armed with two storm bolters.

While you could do this it would be a waste to do so since you can only fire one weapon in the shooting without special rules. If you swapped out for two pistols you could then do Gunslinger but SB are not pistols.

as has been pointed out , what would be the advantage

unless a special rule is in play you can only fire one its just so much decoration for extra cost
it doesn't confer twin linked , or anything else .
